While North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un and his comrades live in luxury, the rest of North Korea languishes in absolute misery. It is worse for Christians, who are routinely tortured to death in hideous ways for refusing to give up their faith. Tens of thousands of Christian have fled to China seeking refuge from the mad dictator.
In a recent story, up to 200,000 North Koreans- many of them Christians- may be repatriated to North Korea from China, where they will face certain torture and death in the most horrible of ways:
A French Catholic priest working with North Korean refugees in China said conditions have worsened for surviving Christians under the dictatorship of Kim Jong-un and urged the Chinese government to give shelter to fugitives from the communist-ruled country.
Fr. Philippe Blot, who works with the Paris Foreign Mission Society, described the situation facing North Korean refugees as “becoming ever more dramatic” as they flee to China to avoid dying of hunger, the National Catholic Reporter said.
“The 200,000 North Koreans now in China shouldn’t be forcibly repatriated,” he said in an interview with France’s Le Monde daily March 30. “They all know they’ll be tortured, sent to camps and killed if this happens.”
The priest said he had been asked for help from refugees while ministering in South Korea’s Andong and Suwon dioceses, and had gone to China in 2010 to help establish a reception network.
“When a North Korean flees, his family [is] considered traitors and sent to re-education camps. So we first have to verify whether they’ve been seized before trying to help via our North Korean contacts,” Blot said.
“But those in China are still in an illegal, dangerous situation,” he said. (source)
